Abstract : This thesis documents the results of a limited simulation and flight test of the A-7D to determine the effect of load factor on aircraft handling qualities. The test condition was 15,000 feet indicated pressure altitude, 0.6 indicated Mach number, at load factors ranging from 1 to 3G's for the mechanical and fully augmented flight control configurations. The equations of motion were developed to include turning flight. Additional keywords: computer programs.
